Information about the Corona Virus

Norwegian authorities have encouraged the whole of society to do its part to halt the spread of the Corona Virus. The board has therefore determined the below, which remains the course of action until further notice:

  • The synagoge is open for Friday and Saturday services with the following provisos:

  • One must register in advance by Thursday evening at 9 p.m.  Members register here, and nonmembers register here. Under no circumstances will anyone who has not pre-registered be allowed in
    • There is a limit of 40 people
    • Due to space constraints there is limit of 20 women
    • One must at all times keep 1 meter apart, though one is encouraged to keep at least 2 meters distance
    • Participants must be at least 12 years old
    • There will be no kiddush, and no candy will be shared in the synagoge
  • The kosher-store is open once a week, but is allowing only one customer at a time to ensure enough space between people.  We are unfortunately only able to offer this service to members of the community. 
  • The board encourages all members to reach out and help those who are in the high risk group, or in quarantine/isolation, without coming into physical contact. For example, one can offer to be a phone buddy or do the grocery shopping. If you would like to participate, please let us know
